Prime Time

Yes, it is. The weather is so nice it’s distracting.

But this is about on-line commerce.

Amazon “Prime.” Pay ~$79 a year and everything you order delivers in two days (sometimes one) at no extra charge. This has been invaluable. We have ordered everything from a case of toilet paper to a kayak to sewing notions I needed to finish a project. Plus you can share Prime with family members. We broke even in less than a 90 days.

Ship to Store. More and more companies with brick and mortar (ha) stores are allowing one to order online and have it shipped to the store one specifies — at no shipping charge. We have started ordering things underway and picking them up. West Marine does this but takes forever. Home Depot and Walmart have much quicker turnarounds.

Now off to the Sushi place.
